    They're like barracuda, so well adapted that survival is not an issue.

    They kill for the fun of it.

    I've even let a cockroach walk. These and fire ants are the only things I'll kill just to kill them.

    I'd love it if someone could use the hide. There's a 7 mag hole through the rear and a cz52 hole through the back of the neck. And we've not hit cold weather here yet so the pelt's not full.

    well, WinnR, if i find out how to do it anytime really soon, i'll definitely use it and either send it back to you or pay you for it.

    If you know you have them around in your area, the best thing we found to do was
    use a rabbit squeeler ( $11.99 @ Cabella's. Just search for "rabbit call" from their main
    page, and it will take you right to it).

    We would set up, usually with semi auto .22's, but sometimes with M-1 carbines, or
    .220 Swift and .222 Rem Magnum rifles. We would find a lone tree or group of trees
    with a clear field of view for about 100 yards or more all the way around. Best time
    to set up was about an hour and a half before sunset. Use the call, and just keep
    watching. Use it real loud the first couple minutes, then space the calls out, and
    muffle them a little, and Wiley E Coyote will come lookin' for a easy dinner!!! Depending
    on how bold they are in your area, you can call them to within 15 or 20 yards if they
    are really lookin' for that rabbit and not paying attention to you.


    If you want to read more about the Coyote as a species, this is a great source: http://www.canids.org/species/Coyote.pdf

    Thanks smitty.

    I've wondered if the low cost calls worked.

    I'll get one.

    For pistol-packin-wifey, you should subscribe to The BackWoodsman Magazine, or go to http://www.backwoodsmanmag.com. Not only is there a wealth of outdoor info, but how-to info on tanning your own furs and many other lost skills.

    I haven't tried it but the site and methods are well thought of on the Mountain Man List.
